Juliusz Doboszewski (Jagiellonian University Cracow and University of Geneva): On ‘physically unreasonable’ spacetimes in quantum gravity

Abstract: Belot (1998) argued that “our interpretative beliefs about electromagnetism are open to revision in light of quantum effects” (i.e. the Aharonov-Bohm effect). I use the examples of AdS/CFT and black-to-white hole quantum tunneling to argue that contemporary approaches to quantum gravity lead to analogous revision of our assessment of certain general relativistic spacetimes. That is, acceptance of these approaches leads to revision of what one takes to be a physically reasonable spacetime.

In terms of technical difficulty, this talk rates 3/5
